"Though Kaukonen may be exaggerating a bit in hindsight"

I don't think so - remember Jorma and Jerry started out in the coffee houses at the same time. Both became known for their ability to play authentic music - Garcia also became known as "THE guy" who could but bands together. It was his forte - understanding the parts and how they work together. I believe Jorma could have gained very valuable insight into playing in a band from Garcia. I take him at his words.
